Soooooooooo................. We ready! You?! Mañana is the start of what we have been working on for years! ...

Dear Shop, We want to thank you for the last almost 10 years. We have seen lots of change together, lots of laughs, some tears, some blood and lots of sweat. We have grown our friend list, we have seen all of our families grow and some certainly some new gray hairs. All of this has filtered in and out of this shop. But we have to let you know that we have to move on and start calling you “old shop”. Nothing personal, just a new era and sorry for all the holes. We will always love you old shop and you will always be the OG. We promise to drive by lots and check in to see if any music is playing from time to time. Farewell. We will be gone in a week.... ...

We don’t ever really post reviews , but this one yesterday gave us the feels. 😊 ...

Impact

Healthy People, Healthy Planet

According to Environmental Protection Agency, approximately 3 million tons of furniture and furnishings are discarded each year in the United States alone. This business inspires us to provide a service for our community that contributes to a small footprint, local jobs, prevention of waste and the overall health of our community and planet.

The EPA also estimates that the average person receives 72% of their chemical exposure at home. The primary sources of these toxins are from new products and VOCs off-gassing into our interior air from products including the majority of new furniture and their construction. The VOCs come from flame retardants, glues, dyes, stain treatments, foams, finishes, composite wood construction and plywood frame furniture. To combat your risk, some sources say to let your new furniture off-gas from 2 weeks to up to a year in an open air environment to eliminate the risks from these airborne toxins upon initial new purchase. This is unrealistic for most of us.

Buying used furniture not only contributes positively to global climate change, the local landfill, fossil fuel use through transportation and shipping/packaging material but also to the air we breathe within our own homes.
